I Am My Own

“I am not chewed up, spat out bubblegum”

I am not fine china chipped by his touch now sitting on the thrift store shelf.

I am not a porcelain tea cup filled with saliva from mouths of boys for whom I willingly opened my legs.

I am not plucked petals of a rose trampled by men that entered my hallowed place without my consent.

I am not a shiny new bicycle used for a joyride reduced to a ridden whore.

I am not the ideology carved into my heart by men with halos balanced on horns.

I am a sensuous spell cast behind the veil

I am erotic magic in the moonlight

I am an ember of intimacy

I am a sacred mystery

My womb has been a garden

My womb has been a grave

My breasts have fed the future

I have carried the world on my hip six times

I have danced with the presence of the Holy

I am a force field of femininity

I am Heir to the Universe

I am a part of the Divine

I am one with Love

I am without shame

I am my own
I am my own
I am my own
